After a good 1st round for Notre Dame players, there were not any Irish selected in the 2nd or 3rd rounds of Friday night’s NFL Draft.
Safety Harrison Smith was Minnesota’s 2nd pick in the Draft (29th overall). The Vikings were desperate for a new face in the backfield of their defense, and hopefully they found that guy in Harrison Smith.
As for 9 other potential Draft picks from South Bend, they haven’t been as lucky. Here’s the list of players who haven’t been picked yet and when I believe they will be drafted, if at all.
|ALL PLAYERS||ROUND TAKEN||ROUND EXPECTED||DRAFTED BY||POS||HT||WT|
|Robert Blanton||5th (139th overall)||Minnesota Vikings||S||6’0¾”||208|
|Darius Fleming||5th (165th overall)||San Fransico 49ers||OLB||6’1⅝”||245|
|Michael Floyd||1st (13th overall)||Arizona Cardinals||WR||6’2⅝”||220|
|Harrison Smith||1st (29th overall)||Minnesota Vikings||S||6’1⅞”||213|
